Not sure I understand what it means exactly by two UPSs to act as one, serial addition of two units or parallel? I don't think that's directly supported in DCO. I think in either case a possible work around might be to create a single UPS.

There are two UPSs 250KW working in paralle. and these two 250KW UPSs are working in parallel with 500KW UPS.
If I replaced the two UPSs 250 KW by a single UPS 500KW I will not be able to associate the UPSs correctly, what do you recommend ?

As Jef Faridi suggested, if the UPS are configured in parallel, you should model them as one UPS in DCO (with the combined capacity of the two UPSs - 500KW).
In order to get the associations from DCE to work, I would create a UPS object with zero capacity and a small form factor, and then place that next to the big UPS in DCO. That way, you get a UPS object where you can associate DCE alarms.
Hope this helps.
